International Moot Court Competition

About GNLU

Gujarat National Law University was established in 2003 with the aim of promoting excellence in legal education as well as legal research. Since its inception, the University has been holding regular in-house moot court competitions, after which meritorious students are sent across the country as well as abroad to participate in moot court competitions. The university regularly organizes two moots a year- the GNLU International Moot Court Competition and the GNLU Moot on Securities and Investment Law.

About GIMC

The GNLU International Moot Court Competition (GIMC) was launched in 2009 with the objective of creating a platform for testing the legal acumen and potential of law students globally. For over a decade, GIMC has served as a unique platform for law students to explore nuances of international trade law and hone their research and advocacy skills.

The competition boasts of successful past collaborations with the World Trade Institute (WTI), University of Bern; IELPO LL.M. Programme, University of Barcelona; Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan Attorneys; Centre for Trade and Investment Law and Centre for WTO Studies, Indian Institute of Foreign Trade; Borden Ladner Gervais LLP; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations; EBC-SCCOnline; Westlaw; Thomson Reuters India, and TradeLawGuide and aims to further build on these relations. Previous editions of the competition saw the WTI provide the winners an opportunity to attend their Summer Academy on Trade Regulation and Global Governance. L&S has also offered internship opportunities to the winners of previous editions of the competition.

In continuation of our legacy and with an aim to set higher standards to test the legal acumen, research, and oratory skills of the participating teams, Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar, cordially invites you to the 15th edition GIMC, scheduled to be held from February 15 — 18, 2024.
